Ontario Tech acknowledges the lands and people of the Mississaugas of Scugog Island First Nation.

We are thankful to be welcome on these lands in friendship. The lands we are situated on are covered by the Williams Treaties and are the traditional territory of the Mississaugas, a branch of the greater Anishinaabeg Nation, including Algonquin, Ojibway, Odawa and Pottawatomi. These lands remain home to many Indigenous nations and peoples.

We acknowledge this land out of respect for the Indigenous nations who have cared for Turtle Island, also called North America, from before the arrival of settler peoples until this day. Most importantly, we acknowledge that the history of these lands has been tainted by poor treatment and a lack of friendship with the First Nations who call them home.

This history is something we are all affected by because we are all treaty people in Canada. We all have a shared history to reflect on, and each of us is affected by this history in different ways. Our past defines our present, but if we move forward as friends and allies, then it does not have to define our future.

ACM-W Student Chapter

The Association for Computing Machinery's Women in Computing (ACM-W) Student Chapter was founded in 2016. It aims to connect students in science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM) and STEM-related fields. It also acknowledges women are a minority in STEM fields, especially in computing. 

The chapter focuses on career development, professional networking and educational support. It hosts a number of annual events to help students develop both personal and professional skills. Furthermore, the student chapter strives to bring awareness to common issues women face in the professional world, and provide them with support, encouragement and a voice on campus. 

The ACM-W Student Chapter is open to all students who support women in computing! The chapter invites membership from all students who share STEM-related interests, regardless of race, religion, ethnicity or gender.
